    Dhikr and Du`aa’*

    Merits of Dhikr

    The merits of remembrance of Allah Most High are highlighted in the following Quranic verses:

    [Then do ye remember Me; I will remember you. Be grateful to Me, and reject not Faith.] (Al-Baqarah 2: 152)

    [Men who celebrate the praises of Allah, standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides.] (Aal `Imran 3: 190)

    The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is reported to have said, Surely, Allah, Glorified and Exalted be He, says, I will be with My servant as long as he makes mention of Me and moves his lips in making mention of Me. (Reported by Al-Bukhari) and No people assemble to remember Allah but angels surround them, mercy covers them, sakinah (calmness) descends upon them, and Allah mentions them in His assembly. (Reported by Muslim)

    Merits of Du`aa

    The merits of supplication are highlighted in the following hadiths:

    Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, In the sight of Allah, Glorified and Exalted be He, nothing is more honorable than du`aa. (Reported by At-Tirmidhi)

    Verily, the most virtuous act of worship is du`aa. (Reported by Al-Bukhari)

    Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, Whoever does not ask Allah, will incur Allahs wrath upon himself. (Reported by At-Tirmidhi)

    Ibn Mas`ud (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, Beseech Allah to shower His Bounty upon you, for Allah loves to be besought. (Reported by At-Tirmidhi)


    Etiquette of Du`aa

    Following are some points of etiquette that one who makes du`aa is recommended to strictly adhere to:

    1.Choose the optimum time to make du`aa . The best times are: the Day of `Arafah (9th of Dhul-Hijjah), the month of Ramadan, Fridays, the last part of the night before dawn, the time between the Adhan and Iqamah, after performing Prayer, while it rains, in times of jihad, after finishing the recitation of the whole Quran, while prostrating, after breaking ones fast.

    2. Face the qiblah.

    3. Lift ones hand towards the sky.

    4. Wipe ones face with ones hands after du`aa.

    5. Lower the voice.

    6. Commence du`aa with praising Allah Most High.

    7. Send blessings upon the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him).

    8. Steer clear of oppression and sins.

    9. Remain penitent.

    10.Implant consciousness of Allah Most High in the heart.
